Really enjoyed our stay at Risby Cove. Thank you to all the amazing staff that made our stay in Strahan enjoyable. Really loved the view from our room and from the restaurant. Food in the restaurant was 10 out 0f 10. Rooms are not modern but very cosy. Floor heating made our room nice & warm. Thank you to all... More

My husband and I drove to Strahan from Hadspen, a very long windy drive. We checked into Risby Cove after making our booking very late the night before. The young lady on reception was very welcoming and accommodating. We had an upstairs 2 bedroom unit and it was fantastic. Absolute water frontage. We dined in the restaurant and the food... More

Best thing about Risby Cove is the location, overlooking the water. I suspect your experience will very much depend on the room you have. Ours (the "Coast room" I think) was above the kitchen of the restaurant and the bathroom smelled of cooking oil. Better coices would be the two independent rooms right on the water or the Jetty Room... More

great location and the restaurant on site is an added bonus, especially if it happens to rain! very comfortable accommodation and quite a bit of room to spread out. we stayed one night and managed to do the steam train on our first afternoon in Strahan and the Gordon river cruise the following morning.

Room with a magnificent view of Strahan, upper level, however needs a little TLC. Bathroom taps leaking rusty substance, but beds comfortable and clean. Great restaurant, magnificent steaks cooked to perfection!!

Great little cottages and a restaurant on site. The cabin was modern,clean and well appointed. There isn't any kitchen facilities except for tea and coffee, a toaster and a micro-wave. I think they want to encourage you to use the restaurant. There is a mini-bar (one of my great hates). I usually asked for it to be emptied. We stayed... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Gorgeous setting right on the water and a short walk to town. Very comfortable and lovely rooms with appropriate kitchenette facilities. A muck up by the travel agent saw the wrong room booked but the manager and owner were very obliging in fixing this up (despite us turning up during a busy dinner service)... More

Risby Cove is a spacious, clean and well-maintained accommodation. Such a refreshing venue to arrive home to, with an excellent waterfront location and to have everything from the train, shops and waterfalls within walking distance made it an absolute delight. Watching the sunset from the bedroom was a truly a highlight. The site is beautifully blended into its surroundings with... More

A really pleasant place to spend the night right beside the harbour. Only a 5 minute walk to the town centre. The room was very pleasant and spacious. We had dinner in the restaurant which was exceptional, credits to the chef and staff. Could not recommend Risby Cove more!

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at Risby Cove, we were in room 10 and had a very comfortable king size bed, huge bathroom with a great walk in shower. There was no heat lamp in the bathroom and it was freezing. Lots of bird life and very quiet. We ate in the restaurant one night and it was... More
